BENTLEY RUMBLE The Second Chance (2004)

The first time I met Reggie Hamilton we were both drunk.  Not fall-down, can't-string-two-words-together drunk, but what they used to call out here in Hollywood back in the 1930s 'amusingly drunk.'  It was perfectly acceptable to be a lush back then as long as you were prepared to be discreet about it and did nothing to tarnish the squeaky clean image of whichever major studio you were lucky enough to be contracted to at the time.  It was particularly acceptable if, like me, you also happened to be the talented, up-and-coming young director of a picture called That Hopkins Girl which had recently netted MGM something in the vicinity of two million Depression-era dollars.
